Product details

Even if this were his Father's Root Beer, he wouldn't know. The Bastard Stepson Root Beer started out as a wholesome traditional cream stout, but after mixing things up with a rowdy bunch from the other side of the aisles turned into something a bit more mischievous...

Everything you'd expect from a root beer is present: notes of vanilla, caramel, licorice, and sarsaparilla all meld into the creamy, decadent body of the base beer. Sip on a pint and be whisked back to your childhood, (which was hopefully better than the Bastard Stepson's) or couple it with vanilla ice cream for a truly delicious treat.

Aroma Smells like a normal root beer
Appearance deep ruby, nearly jet black - silky, lacy and firm off white head
Flavor Vanilla, caramel, licorice, sarsaparilla
Mouthfeel Smooth, medium creamy body
Overall Impression    Reminiscent of root beer soda, with a bit of an alcohol kick

**** Stepson root beer

Turned out to be a 5% ABV great beer just a little overpowering on the root beer side

Yummy!

After reading the previous reviews regarding the sweetener, I opted out of adding any of the provided sweetener (sucralose?). Instead, I added 19 oz of erythritol with monk fruit (from Costco) and bottled with normal priming sugar. One week into bottle conditioning, it tastes great but still a little under carbonated. The stout base works really well with the root beer extract. I think it'll carbonate up well in another week or two. I lucked out with the erythritol. I think 19 oz was okay. Definitely not too sweet for me.
